3 — Shayne Skov, Stanford
Skov seems to be the most realistic option for the Bears at inside linebacker. He doesn’t have great speed at the position, but is a solid tackler and can help create some competition with Jon Bostic and D.J. Williams, should he re-sign with the team. He’ll certainly be available in the second round and even the third, but the Bears need to be careful here — Skov has suffered several injuries in his career that make him a risky choice. Unfortunately the middle linebacker position is thin this year, so Skov and the other targets should not be high on the Bears’ priority list.
